Mosaic provides a life of possibilities for individuals with intellectual disabilities. We help people define their own happiness. We support them and empower the pursuit of their goals. We celebrate their successes, even if that success is as simple as the pursuit itself.
More than nine decades ago, children and adults with intellectual disabilities often endured abuse and abandonment in large institutions. In response to the isolation they faced, the Rev. K.G. William Dahl, a Lutheran pastor, founded Bethphage near Axtell, NE, in 1913.
Bethphage soon became known as the "miracle of the prairie" for its dedication to helping people with disabilities grow toward independence. This rich heritage of supporting and advocating for people with disabilities grew further on July 1, 2003, with the founding of Mosaic, the consolidation of Bethphage and Martin Luther Homes.
Mosaic School in Axtell, Neb., offers an educational program that emphasizes functional academics, pre-vocational skills, communication/speech, social skills, sensory integration, and community activities. Occupational and physical therapy services are also included in the curriculum as needed per individual student.
Mosaic at Bethphage Village Retreat Program
Bethphage Village maintains two fully-equipped retreat centers. Retreat participants, through hand-on experiences, learn about Mosaic's services and become knowledgeable advocates for people with disabilities.
Visitors are treated to an 80-acre natural prairie wonderland. It provides fully accessible hiking trails, fishing, picnicking and the opportunity to observe prairie wildlife, plants, fish, insects and the migration of waterfowl each Spring and Fall.

Country Music Dream Come True
Dave Harmon, a District Sales Consultant for Cash-WA, simply wanted to share the opportunity for someone to see a great concert when he presented Mosaic in Axtell with two ticket to an upcoming performance at the Merryman Performing Arts Center in Kearney. Little did he know that he would be making a wish come true for someone.
meet one of our residents
As goals for Nima were established, Nima wanted to continue that interest. For a number of years, staff at Mosaic have had a quilt club, which meets every Saturday. One of the members of this club is Nima's teacher, Kathy Maxon.
Nima was invited to attend a meeting and last year became a regular member. She has been given assistance with her first quilts, but as she goes along she is getting more independent. She is very determined. Her first goal was to complete the quilt shown, but she has plans to make several baby quilts, which she wants to present to a number of staff friends here at Mosaic in Axtell.
